The date in the listing is the one Bridgehunter provided probably from an NBI listing. We are finding that NBI is not so great on "actual" build dates of the trusses.

I agree with Wes. This bridge is much older than the given date. I would say 1880's to early 1890's and it may even be wrought iron. Nice bridge.

I am willing to bet that this and the Polecat Creek through Pratt were both part of the same structure at one time and moved here circa 1925. The bridge looks very much like ones built from c1890 to c1910 as depicted on many other bridge sites.
